Avtolyubka: operating rules
Moving around the city by car, when you have a child, especially a newborn, is much more convenient. But do not forget about security. That is why there are certain rules for the transportation of children, backed up with articles of law. And the most important of them – the kid should be in the car. But when you go to the children’s goods store, young parents are often confused: which device to choose, how they differ, how to attach them and whether a certain model for their car will fit.
What is a children’s car, for children of what age it is intended
Transportation of children in a car without special adaptation is traumatic, according to the law of the Russian Federation, for this driver faces a fine of 3000 rubles. To reduce risks, special devices have been developed that are attached to the seat of the car and in which the child feels comfortable and is completely safe.
The bony system of the baby is very fragile: from birth to the year the skeleton basically consists of cartilaginous tissue. A very vulnerable point is the baby’s neck: even weak, but sharp jerks can lead to serious injuries. Therefore, the use of a car is mandatory.
There are different categories of autolifts in which you can transport children from birth to a certain age and weight:
- group 0: this model resembles a solid cradle from a stroller and is designed to transport a newborn from the first days of life and up to six months, on average, until the weight of the baby reaches 10 kg. Its weight is about 10-13 kg, so it is not mobile enough. Inside the crumb is only in a horizontal position on a soft special insert, somewhat resembling a mattress. The device is equipped with:
- a hood that can be folded;
- plastic handle, with which it can be carried;
- To ensure the safety of the child inside, special straps are provided that fix the baby in the chest area;

Together with the carrying, you need to buy a special insert, which is a canvas for the entire length of the cradle with a convex roller from below. What for? In order for the baby to be in a physiological position, and there was no load on the still fragile spine. When such a mattress is put in the car, the child is lying properly, and the back does not bend.
All avtolyubki, except for category 0, represent a deep concave bowl that does not allow the child to lie completely horizontally. Therefore, many parents, buying a device, worry about the position of the baby in it.
Sometimes on the mattress there are sidewalls for extra protection of the neck and head from impact. On sale also there are special inserts, which is easy enough to put in a car seat under the mattress without a sewn roller. If you do not have such a liner or mattress, you can use a blanket or a towel. This is necessary for additional fixation of the child in the device.
